... has anyone with a dog found one?

We have a tiny pedal bin in our tiny kitchen and the puppy can manage to put his feet on the pedal, lift the lid and hot foot it around the garden with it's contents. :rolleyes008:

Oooh ooooh ooooh ooooh I know this one, I know this one.

Yes you can. :D

My parents have a bin with a lockable lid because their dogs flip the lid up with their noses. Hang on and I'll phone them and ask where they got it from.

This is the one my parents have - it's bigger than a tiny pedal bin though. :unsure:

Thanks for asking them Dawn - that's exactly what i need just a bit big. I'll have a look and see if they do a smaller version. :p015:

Orrr you can train him to not do it.

Put some tin-cans ontop of the bin and then when he opens the bin, they'll crash to the floor and scare him. After a while he'll associate scavanging with

We always just trained our dogs to stay out of the trash--including the puppies! Took a while, but they learned in time. They were part of the family and had unrestricted access to the house, so training was critical! :)

I have already done exactly that with the tin cans - hopefully he will get the message :D

Please be careful using this method, you could end up with a fear-reactive dog.

This forum Here (http://www.dogpages.org.uk/forums/index.php?showforum=4) is fantastic for training tips etc :yes:

Well I've heard of it being used multiple times, especially on labradoodles and I've never heard of any dogs being fear-reactive. It's not different from using tit-bits to get your dog to sit- learning by association.

Instead of realising that when he sits on command he gets a treat, (a positive thing) he instead learns that going in the bin makes a scary noise (a negative thing) and won't do that again.
